Join Borton Overseas on this Signature Journey, led by Scandinavia Specialist Teemu Karhapää, and hosted by Max Stevenson, Director of Exhibitions & Programming at Norway House, to see Finland’s multi-faceted culture and experience the art, design, and architecture that Finland has to offer.
Having lived in Finland, Max Stevenson has a special place in his heart for a lot of the items on this tour. Rooted in his childhood interest in both his Finnish and Norwegian ancestry, Max grew up exposed to many aspects of his heritage — including frequent saunas — before exploring Finland as an exchange student living in southwest Finland in 2007-08. It was during his time there that he discovered famous architect and designer, Alvar Aalto, who he references as one of the important figures to reinforce his passion for Nordic arts and culture. After living abroad, Max studied at St. Olaf College where he received his Bachelor of Art in Studio Art in 2012 and focused his artistic passions on the study of glassblowing, printmaking, and Nordic literature and film.
